How Are Osteopaths Trained?

Osteopaths are skilled professionals, whose training involves a detailed study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, Osteopathic manual techniques and clinical skills, which include learning to recognise where further investigation may be necessary.

Osteopathic training usually requires 4 years of full-time study on a training course recognised by the General Osteopathic Council (the government appointed regulator for Osteopathy) and results in a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Osteopathy.
